Description

Keyhole / Last Stash can hold snow late in a cycle as it's accessed via a quick side-step above the "Easy Out" Exit to Paradise. There are a couple steep tree chutes in Keyhole with a few rocks right after the side-step that drop you right onto Last Stash, or you can stay left and drop through the tight trees to find Last Stash. From Last Stash you'll have to head right to get back to Last Steep or face some really thick trees until you find Buck's Traverse.
